For me, there is no greater joy than the AHA! moment that a guest has when we’re on location at a very cool place, and they’ve just shot their best photograph using what I’ve taught them.
Andy has been a photographer all his life. His professional work can be found on his website. Andy is also a published author in worldwide magazines and newspapers, books, and his work hangs in boardrooms and living rooms around the world. He hosts the acclaimed reCOMPOSE Podcast, which covers a wide variety of photography topics and subjects bi-weekly.
Andy has a tremendous passion for travel, wildlife, landscape, and situational photography. He loves to share his knowledge and experience. One of the original “internet gurus “of photography, he’s been online for over 20 years, helping photographers of all levels learn and grow. From his love of photography and teaching, these workshops were born. Over the years, Andy, Marc, and Dave have developed a close working relationship and have honed in on unique and effective teaching methods. They all share the ultimate goal of “passing it along” to their workshop guests.
What has become evident over the years is that Andy excels at his craft and teaching others. Andy can distill complicated subjects down to practical methods that his students can employ immediately.

One thing that really sets Muench Workshops apart is the personal attention in the months leading up to the adventure. I was astonished that Andy called me directly to talk about the workshop when I emailed my interest. It meant the world to me that he cared enough to work with me to help me get to the point of being able to make the decision to attend. The opportunity to ask him questions during the prep for the workshop was fantastic and helped take some of the guesswork out of the prep regarding adequate layers. As it turned out, without that interaction, I would not have upgraded my already significant cold-weather gear (which was critical for this adventure) ...and been cold. I never expected -20 degree boots would not be sufficient!
Andy was beyond hospitable and would have done everything possible to make certain that everyone was having a good time and had everything that they needed. Andy's outward personality and leadership are much appreciated.
I was so pleased to find the workshop turned out to be much more than I expected. Andy takes such great care of people. I noticed this on several occasions, where he was very diligent in meeting individuals' needs, from photography to food and comfort! Marc was consistently kind, patient, and so easygoing. Both men really shined, which is not easy to do with the dynamics of keeping tabs on a group and maintaining a schedule to give us optimal opportunities.
